There is a possibility that the garden boy teased the dog initially. There are 3 important things your garden boy should do. No eye, verbal or physical contact. The dog gets attention like this and will continue doing it. You as the owner should also not reprimand the dog in that circumstance at all. The dog should not see the water coming from anybody. In his mind he should put the behaviour together. Each time I behave like this, the water falls from the sky. Put some citronella oil in the water. When the dog moves off or gets a fright, the people should turn their backs and walk away. You could also use a bunch of keys or a tin with stones in. The most important thing is that the dog does not see it coming from anybody. It has to fall from the sky. You ultimitaly want to cause a startle response.
If done correctly, this will work.
